The Scarlet Terror (サクーレットテラー Sukaaretto Teraa?), commonly called the Flip Kick, is one of Vega's special attacks, introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

All appearances Arcade Stick CDBArcade Stick Right + Arcade Button Kick


Executed by charging down-backward then pressing forward and kick, Vega employs his backflip animation as an offensive attack. It breaks armor in more recent appearances.

The forward distance and amount of strikes are determined by the kick button pressed: light kick version has Vega do a single strike in a very short hop; medium and heavy kick versions both strike twice, with heavy kick covering a bigger distance.

The EX Special introduced in Street Fighter IV has Vega jump much higher, with more damage dealt and a slightly bigger interval between the two hits.


As with all anti-air moves, it works well for punishing or inhibiting incoming air attacks, though Vega will be left vulnerable if it whiffs or gets blocked.
